We have opening for a few theoretical postdoc positions in the subject of quantum information and condensed matter physics in the group of Dr. Abolfazl Bayat at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in Chengdu. The focus of research is to explore different aspects of many-body systems using quantum information tools. The projects will focus on:
Non-equilibrium dynamics of many-body systems.
The projects are mainly based on numerical simulations using Density Matrix Renormalization Group (DMRG) and novel machine learning techniques such as neural networks and Bayesian estimators.
电子科技大学基础与前沿研究院Abolfazl Bayat教授课题组招收量子信息、凝聚态物理研究方向博士后。课题组研究方向为：Quantum sensing，Non-equilibrium dynamics of many-body systems，Many-body localization，Quantum simulators。
The candidates should be under the age of 35 and have a background in at least one of these fields: many-body systems, condensed matter physics or quantum information. Previous numerical experiences with matrix product states and machine learning are advantageous.
The initial duration of the contract is 2 years with possible extensions. The starting of the position will be around April 2018 but can also be negotiated.
Salaries and benefits
Competitive annual salary and additional bonus for specific achievements will be provided.
A daily academic fund about 10,000 RMB/per year and a set of residence in China will be offered.
Postdoc with foreign nationality (including Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) will enjoy a reimbursement at most 10,000 RMB expense for international travel or family visiting per year.
